Help with choosing AV and Firewall

Post by iDhitz on Sun Aug 01, 2010 2:37 pm

I'm currently running Avira Antivir Personal and Windows Firewall. Should I change my AV and add a firewall ? If so, what should I use?

Hi iDhitz,

Avira does incredibly well in detection. Personally, I would leave Avira as is.Wink Now for a firewall, try Comodo Premium Firewall. Just remember to uncheck install the antivirus. As running more then one, is a major no no.Smile

Hi iDhitz,

I actually use Avira AntiVir Personal. It's never given me any issues.

As for firewalls, I use Online Armor.

It does a great job, and like Avira, it hasn't given me any issues.
